1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    they're about the same i think. I guess Aldo tends to be more business-friendly.

    You can, but he will probably be late to the blame ceremony.

    Since when does lowering the speed limit change driver behavior at all?

    If the lights are timed for 25 instead of 30, it will certainly change driver behavior.

    Are you prepared for the snow tonight, New Yorkers? I am shivering sympathetically over here on the left coast.

    Walking the Brooklyn Heights promenade in that rain/wind/chill last night was actually quite fun and refreshing.

    Ok, so should it take 30 minutes to get from Spring street to the upper west side (~75th) at 7:30 on a Friday night in a taxi? What about 30 minutes back to Spring at 10:30 pm on a Friday night?

    30 min at 7:30 does not sound unreasonable. at 10:30, should be more like 15-20 max.
